I am not a big drinker, but one of my clients owns this bar. I was excited to have a place to go once in a while when I want to go out. The Eagle above was hand drawn on the wall of the bar by one of the owners.
This bar is a Levi, Leather and Bear. But everyone is welcome. I hear that on special nights, you must wear the proper clothes before they will let you in.
The atmosphere at the bar is great, the music is not to loud, its not to dark and not to bright. The restaurant part of the bar is wonderful. The food is great with the prices to match. The staff is very friendly, and bartenders L and J make the place.
Last Saturday, I made a few new friends. I saw a group of guys playing Frakel at a table. I asked if I could join in. They agreed and I played a few games with them. It was a great time. I ended up closing the bar, with the owners. The next day I had to be at work at 9am. I was soooo late. =o)
The Grand Opening is February 1st and I plan on going. If you want more information please give them a call
The next one wanted her windows cleaned. They were a mess too.
Her dogs just laid there the entire time. lol
Once I was done they looked really good. =o)
This customer said, look at what the contractors left me, one panel of siding out.
They all so left large gaps in the trim work. He called the company that did this, and they told him to bad.
We fixed his trim with no gaps
We added new siding to the one that was missing.
We had the one lady that called us to do an estimate, she said her ceiling fan was broke and so was her bathroom sink. When we got there, I found a fan blade that came loose, I just tightened it and the fan worked just like new. She showed us the sink, and we just had to clean the screen in it. It was fixed.
She was so pleased at everything we did, she asked how much, and we said $15 for gas. She happily agreed and has been giving our cards out to many people.
I could not believe my eyes. I saw this bright bright Red and Orange glow in the sky. It was west of my home. The first thing I thought was to grab my camera. I ran into the house and ran back out thinking it would be gone. It was still there. I took a video of it...
It moved so fast that I stopped the record and looked with my eyes to find it again. By the time I did, it shot straight up in the sky and disappeared. I was amazed.
R.A.D. Professional Services was born last month 9/20/13.
Three months ago me and 2 neighbors was sitting around complaining about our JOBS. (just over broke) All three of us makes just a little over minimum wage. We decided to start a "handyman" business.
Starting a business has not been an easy task. Its more work than I thought it was going to be. I know how to sell, make flyers and hand them out, I know how to make business cards. All of this came naturally to me.
But what has not came naturally to me, is the paperwork for all the other stuff you need for this kind of business. Federal ID number, LLC paperwork, Business Registration with the state of Florida, License with the city, Insurance, etc.
It has taken us about a month to get all the paperwork done. But there is always a catch. Our name that we originally picked for the LLC, was already in use, so now we think this name will work. But not sure yet. Monday we all have to call the state and figure out if this name will work.
In this month time, we have been putting out flyers and talking to people and handing out business cards.
Last week was the first time our phone started ringing. It has rang everyday including yesterday. Its all good, we give FREE Estimates.
One person called on Wednesday and said " I have rental properties, and I need a Handyman for all of them" I said we would love to work with you. He invited us to his first property.
He said here is what I need done here. I need screening on the front porch, toilet keeps leaking, door is off hinges and the last contractor was supposed to put in a dryer vent in the back. We figured a fair price for us and them. We offered the price and he accepted, then he said can you do it today? We apologized and said no, but we can be here first thing in the morning.
8am the next day we meet and head out to the property. Once we got out of the truck, pulled out the tools, everyone took off to do their jobs. Robin did the screening, Darrick did the dryer vent, and I started in the bathroom.
Robbin worked on the screening. She did a very good job.
This door was not an easy task. I put it on its hinges, but the door would not close. The door was larger than the frame. I went and got Darrick and said can you help me with this. We had to cut 1/2" off the door to make it fit.
Darrick said the dryer vent was a B!tch to get in. He had to chip out the concrete with a electric hammer that we rented for the job, but the roof line came down to far to get it lined up right. He kept up with it and it turned out really good.
The toilet was in my opinion the easiest job to do. I pulled the old guts out and put the new one in.
We are happy that we our first job is completed. Our Client was very pleased with the job that we did. Not one complaint.
On Monday September 23, my cousin decided to get married. I couldn't for the life of me think why on earth he would have it on a Monday. But I told him I would go. I requested the day off from work.
It was funny really, cause the night before the wedding, I texted him and asked what is the dress code? He said formal. I was oh man, I don't even know where any of my ties are. I had to search the house for over two hours and then I finally found one.
The wedding was supposed to start at 4pm. I checked google maps and found out that it was 1.45 hours away. I decided to leave a little early just incase.
I woke up to the hardest rain I have heard on my roof. I thought this ought to be fun to drive in. When I left the house, it was not raining. I was happy to see that it had stopped. I stopped and got gas and a drink. Hit the road, as soon as I entered the interstate, here came the rain again. It was like a monsoon. I mean it was like people was throwing buckets of water on the truck. I starting singing the theme song to Gilligans Island. I thought it was proper thing to sing on a day like this.
What was supposed to be 1.45 hours drive turned into 3.0 hours drive. The drivers, including the truckers were driving 35 mph in a 70 mph road. I am glad that I had made it there, but was ready to go in and get to a bathroom. I walked up to the door, to be stopped by a woman that said we are not opening the doors until 4pm. I begged her to let me in so that I could go to the bathroom. She finally gave in. Not a minute too soon either.
They opened the doors and gave us our seating assignments. My seat was a good one for taking pictures.
This is Scott and Tiffany.
The flower girl was so scared that she was going to get in trouble for dropping the flowers on the floor. Everyone was telling her it was ok this time. =o)
The bride Laura and her mother.
Steph told me before the wedding started that he was so nervous. I told him just take a deep breath it would all be ok. When Steph spoke none of us could hear him. He was very soft spoken.
I didn't get the picture of the kiss. My camera thought right then would be a great time to shut off.
The Victory, you can tell how happy they are!
This picture, I wanted to make them two stand out. I thought it worked ok.
They had for us a full course meal. It was really good.
Laura and Mother dance.
Steph and mom dance. (sorry about the pictures.)
See the tie I wore. LOL my three stooges tie.
(this picture was messed up because it was so cold inside and so humid out.)
